Exclamation Can't see multiple authors

Hi guys, I’ve edited some (academic) books metadata with Calibre and within the app I can see all the authors perfectly, but when I transfer them to my Kindle with the Send to Kindle app if a book has multiple authors I can only see one, precisely the first one, about the others nothing to do.

I use the ampersand syntax like: Name1 Surname1&Name2 Surname 2 etc.

Its correct or I’m getting something wrong? Thank you

device: Kindle Paperwhite 2013 - Firmware 5.12.2
programs: Calibre v4.16.0 - Send to Kindle v1.1.1.250 - Windows 10

try sending the books with calibre using a usb cable. When you use send to kindle amazon reprocesses the files and all bets are off.

Thanks it worked, I can see all names!

Unfortunately now I can't see the covers of these books on my Kindle, but on Calibre they appears regularly. Any suggestion?

Thanks, I'm trying to use the method described by pokeit at post #12 but I can't find the system/thumbnails directory on my Kindle..

I'm on Windows 10 and I've enabled the "show hidden contents" option

Sorry, I've finally found the directory using the search option..

I've overwrite the the Amazon 'no image found' icon and now I can see the right cover perfectly

Last question: a book sideloaded to device from USB it's not synchronized with your library..how can I synch it?

The Cloud library of my Kindle, usually I go to the "my contents and devices" section on my Amazon account and from there I can manage all my documents/books stored on my different devices.

You can't, USB transfers transfer books only to the device
